A Chilliwack BC loser upset about Holy Bible in schools
The Fraser Valley, just east of Vancouver, has a reputation as the buckle of the B.C. Bible Belt, something population growth and cultural diversification apparently has done little to change.

Witness the school board in Chilliwack (population 77,936 in the 2011 census, up 12.6 per cent in five years) opting to allow continued distribution of free Gideon Bibles at public elementary schools, despite a parent's objection.

Richard Ajabu has written to B.C. Education Minister Don McRae to stop the board from allowing Gideons International to give fifth grade students free copies of the New Testament if parents consent.

Parent silent about Bible distribution after nasty letters

A parent who caused a stir this week by complaining about the distribution of Gideon Bibles in Chilliwack public schools said he's rethinking his campaign to stop the practice after getting nasty letters from those who disagree with him.

Richard Ajabu said he was declining media requests for interviews and taking a few days break because of the letters, including one that was published in the Chilliwack Times telling him to go back to "his home country" and practice his religion there.

So instead he wants to force his religion, atheism, on the helpless innocent Canadian school children. The Bible is a cornerstone of Western civilization, why does this Marxist liberal antichrist, get to dictate his "nothing created everything" doctrine on everyone else?

Maybe there is hope for Canada after all. If you want to solve our problems you will need more capitalism and more Jesus, not necessarily in that order.

Chilliwack also holds a Canadian record for most Churches per capita

Why don't the schools sent these bibles to one of those charity things where they collect old paper and see it as a financial donation?

I mean I see things that can be done here.. art class ? Papier-mâché?

You have religious freedom in the US. What you are griping about is that non-Christians have it too.

No, they must NOT distribute those. You see, if you went to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Syria, Egypt, Libya, or any other islamist hell hole and demanded they stop distributing korans, you'd be put to death. Islam is the predominate religion over there. In the west, Christianity is the dominate religion as well as the cornerstone of our civilization. We need to stop bending over backwards to appease these tiny minorities of assholes that want to impose their beliefs on us. The Gideon Bibles were given freely with parental permission. His spawn didn't have to take one. Therefore he either needs to emigrate back to whatever hell hole he came from or STFU.

Re: A Chilliwack BC loser upset about Holy Bible in schools
After the genocide of millions of religious believers (Protestants, Catholics, Anabaptists, Muslims, Jews) and others (scientists, humanists, etc) in Middle-Ages Europe, freedom of religion slowly emerged along with the "Enlightenment". It took centuries of well-fought battles to establish tolerance of belief for citizens in Western countries. The separation of Church and State was another achievement that required blood, sweat and tears for many years. Each religion that has ever been co-opted by the State ends up persecuting those who do not buy into the official government-sanctioned belief system, whether Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, or Communist. Our secular Western countries need to safeguard the "Level Playing Field" that allows citizens to openly and freely practice and promote their religions without fear of recrimination from the State or other non-tolerant people. Today, if you persecute Muslims, Christians, or humanists, tomorrow it will be another group who will persecute you. We need to protect freedom of conscience and religion.

In a free and open society, the Gideons should be able to distribute their Bibles with parental consent. Others should be able to do the same with their religion or philosophy. It is healthy for children to learn about the various belief systems around them. They can choose whichever religion or philosophy they like as they grow older. It takes a lot of effort, but it is time well spent.

As I see it, both sides of the debate need to chill out and allow others the freedom to share their philosophical / religious views. Elementary and high schools ARE the right place to learn about the different religions and philosophies of this world. More knowledge = better ability to navigate the waters of our complex society. In today's ever-changing world, we all need to be better equipped to "love our neighbours as ourselves" and "do to others like we want them to do to us".

One more note: Richard Ajabu is not a loser. He just needs to request the Chilliwack School District to all others such as First Nations spiritual leaders, atheists, Sikhs, Buddhists, Muslims, etc. to present their views and distribute their literature.

Thank you,

Dimitri
